Jacket Express

Q&A with Janet Pray

lynnberry asked:
I'm curious about the hem facing on the sides. It almost looks like this version has an elastic insertion in the sides to make the jacket slightly narrower at the bottom. I like that idea because it makes the jacket a little less boxy. Are there instructions for this option in the pattern? Or is it just an optical illusion? :)
Janet Pray answered:
This jacket is not as boxy as you might think.
